Need Help Figuring out Supplement/Feed
I have a horse that had seedy toe and a minor resection was done on the hoof. I was thinking about putting him on a hoof supplement to help with the growing out process. I have been trying to do some research, but I am getting very confused with all the information on the internet. I am hoping that someone that has some experience with this can help me.
Right now, with it being winter, he is not getting much exercise. He is fed 1 pound of Triple Crown Lite and 1/2 cup of Omega Horseshine. If I put him on Source Focus HF, can I still continue to feed what I am feeding or am I going to upset the vitamin/mineral ratios to the point that they no longer work well together? I like the Horseshine for the Omega 3s, but it has very little biotin. The TCL has very little Omega 3s and very little biotin. He will be staying on the TCL, but I could stop the Horseshine and feed Horseshoers Secret which has Omega 3s, but not the large amount found in Horseshine.
To sum up, my scenarios are:
1/2 cup Horseshine
Is this too much?
Will he still get enough Omega 3s?
He is on pasture 24/7, but right now there is very little grass. He has unlimited access to hay. It is good quality hay, but not rich. Also a salt block and Purina Free Balance 12:12 block.
I would appreciate any thoughts on this.
